Gone are the fabulous days of town cars to and from meetings - the ever-popular Susan "Cab Killer" Plagemann has reportedly told Vogue staff to catch the subway to work rather than travelling in the usual luxury of the on-tap town car. "Senior people have been told they must take more subways to meetings as opposed to Town Cars to save money," a source told The Post.
Even Lottie Oakley, associate publisher, had to catch the underground to the Vogue offices, located in busy Times Square, last week. Maybe from now on we'll be seeing a lot more Anna Wintour-esque sunnies on the subway, and, shock horror - the Vogue team in flats?
Last month we were all excited when we learnt that the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show was finally being taped, and thus, one step nearer to reaching our television screens. We brought you images of the 'angels', Heidi Klum, Chanel Iman, Mirander Kerr and Co, taking to the streets of New York's Times Square to get some photo-ops pre-taping. Although it seemed that Victoria's Secret mania was taking over the city, we've just heard that not everyone was impressed by the fanfare surrounding the VS show or the "huge Aggreko generators stretching over half of a city block...running 24 hours a day for over a week, generating vast amounts of noise and preventing and/or disturbing any sleep."
The show, which was taped on World Aids Day, did indeed still have to go on and the VS camp were forced to stump up some funds to compensate the residents and enable them to sleep better. We just don't understand why they weren't offered tickets to preview the show, surely that would have been the cheaper option, non?
